phew that was close

boy did leslie and i survive a scare. i'll start by saying the last time prior to tonight that her and i talked or emailed was sunday the 20th. i emailed her a few times since. she's been working her butt of to save up money to come up and see me. while we were talking tonight, i told her how i felt lonely without her and how frustrated i was that we hardly spoke. she felt the same way. this was probably the closest we came to breaking up without breaking up. i still love her. i still want her to be happy. but, boy that was close.

a reminder to remember

i got a reminder to remember yesterday from a google alert 9thanks darren for the suggestion). yesterday's tara lipinski google alert was an anniversary of sorts. 7 years ago yesterday tara lipinski won gold in nagano and i didn't realize it until i read the google alert. it ws a realization of "hey i remember that." a reminder to remember.

the 47th daytona 500

some finish to this race. 4 lead changes in the last 9 races, a green-white-checkered finish, and white knuckled time the last 2 laps. yikes. jeff gordon won his 3rd daytona 500. the finish alone was worth watching it. and even had the usual "BIG ONE" - well a scaled down version. the "BIG ONE" is a multi-car crash. anyways, a hell of a finish to this race. next race - the auto club 500 in fontana, california.

end of spring! dammit.

it was a nice and short visit by spring, but winter has to make one last kick at the cat here. by this weekend it will be back to seasonal (if you call -11 seasonal) and some snow. man, and we were doing so well getting rid of the snow. oh well farmers need all the moisture they can get. that and the potential of forest fires stay down during the summer. oh yeah, this weekend marks chinese new year. so happy new year there. for that, darren, i hope your happy.
